What you'll learn in this music performance class:

Join us for our September CultureBlast featuring Hip-Hop artist Mana Eini with a special performance and workshop event.

Since the early ’90s, artists such as MC Lyte and Missy Elliott have written explicitly feminist Hip-Hop anthems. Now there is a new artist setting the tone for a new age of female MCs and she goes by Mana. Her music is a reflection of her Middle Eastern heritage. Rapping in both English and Farsi, Mana combines her Middle Eastern sounds with soulful singing and an enticing flow. 

She is also the founder of the international women’s collective Lipstick Revolt. In an interview with FemBot Magazine, she explained that “Lipstick Revolt” is about “making a statement without the intention to.” Through Lipstick Revolt, she empowers other female MCs, artists, and poets to express themselves as well as raise awareness about various political and social issues. Inspiring others and pushing boundaries, Mana is quickly making a name for herself in hip hop. S

he has shared mics with the likes of Talib Kweli and KRS-One as well as performed at festivals such as Washington, DC’s Gay Pride Festival. Mana recently performed on the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage. Her new album is set to drop in October 2017, meshing her gifts not just as a rapper, but as a songstress. Mana is inspiring people to reach their goals and to keep their sanity amidst a chaotic world.

Presented in collaboration with Words Beats & Life, Lipstick Revolt, and the Aftab Committee.
